The Providence Journal gives their pet Kennedy, “Patches,” a leg up with a Saul Alinsky Rule #10 inspired promo passing as news. Here is a sample:
“PROVIDENCE — U.S. Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy fears that supercharged passions fueling the national health-care debate may lead to violence.
Drawing on his family’s violent past, the Democratic congressman told roughly 75 people gathered at a private health-care forum Saturday morning that opponents of Democrat-backed health-care legislation had gone too far. He cited, as an example, 10,000 signs distributed at a recent Washington protest that read, “Bury ObamaCare with Kennedy.”
Patrick Kennedy is the last member of his storied family to hold federal office. His father, U.S. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, died one month ago after battling a brain tumor. His uncles, former President John F. Kennedy and former presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, were assassinated.”
Saul Alinky’s Rule for Radicals #10 is to profess you are the victim of violence in order to gain sympathy. Rep. Kennedy goes on and on without any evidence of impending violence other than some signs printed by a Catholic organization that say: “Bury Health Care With Kennedy.”
This Catholic non-profit, The Life League, opposes abortion, which Catholic Senator Ted Kennedy supported, protected, and endorsed throughout his excruciatingly long career in government.
The Life League knows that abortion takes a life, violently, and they stated quite clearly on their posters what they want; proposed government health care which will include abortion, buried with Kennedy who recently passed away.
The Life League didn’t threaten anyone and poor Patches Kennedy knows it. That is why he was blathering on in front of a friendly AARP crowd and why the Providence Journal ginned up an Alinsky treat for him.
How much of Congressman Patches Kennedy’s endless drug and alcohol addiction will taxpayers have to pay for if we surrender to government run health rationing?
